When I was about 35 years old I began feeling extreme fatigue with generalized aches and pains, kind of like the feeling you get before you get flu. I visited a few doctors and the answers were always the same, â€œYou are a single mother with full time job what do you expect, of course you are tired.â€ Blah, blah it was not an answer and there was never any relief.
I finally found a doctor who gave me an answer and diagnosed me with fibromyalgia.
This syndrome answered my questions and put a name to my complaints. Unfortunately, there was really no treatment that helped. I tried many different medications and exercise programs, even a support group. The medications did not help and I was too tired to do the exercises and go to the support group.
After talking with a friend of my daughterâ€™s at a wedding I decided to try acupuncture. As we all have become accustomed to in this day and age I started surfing the internet. I came to Joyceâ€™s web site and gave her a call. I started treating in January of 09. After about 2-3 weeks I noticed an improvement in the pain. As I continued with my treatment I began having more energy, and noticed an improvement in my overall health.
Words can not express how grateful I am to Joyce for helping me. When I try to explain to my family and friends how much better I feel I express it this way, I feel about 75-80% better. I know I will never feel like I am 20 years old again, but since I am 53 do I really want to? Thanks to Joyce and acupuncture I am now looking forward to a more active less painful life.
